Ujda Chaman (transl. Destroyed Garden) is a 2019 Indian Hindi-language comedy-drama film directed by Abhishek Pathak and produced by Kumar Mangat Pathak and Abhishek Pathak under banner of Panorama Studios. Starring Sunny Singh, Maanvi Gagoo, Saurabh Shukla, Karishma Sharma and Aishwarya Sakhuja, it is co- produced by Aaradhya Maheshwari. It is an official remake of the 2017 Kannada movie Ondu Motteya Kathe. It was theatrically released in India on 1 November 2019. The film is about a balding 30-year-old bachelor who is in search of a wife and is given a deadline to find one or remain celibate forever.
A 30 year balding Hindi lecturer, Chaman Kohli searches desperately for a suitable girl to marry after his family astrologer warns him that if he doesn't get married before his 31st birthday, then he'll have to spend his whole life in celibacy. He confides in his friend who also happens to be the clerk of the college. He advises him to go and search for a bridesmaid at a wedding as that’s where many relationships are formed. Chaman tries to woo a girl at his friend’s wedding but later discovers her making out with his brother Goldie. Then he tries to ask his colleague out on the clerk’s advice but they also deny saying they’ve got their respective boyfriends. Then one day a first year student Aaina comes to him and consoles him for his mockery by other students. She befriends him, hangs out with him only to get hold of the questions of exam. Goldie sees Aaina and Chaman together and tells the family about them making them very happy. She later becomes very indifferent towards him and refuses to even talk. Dejected by Aaina’s Treachery Chaman finds solace in tinder and meets Apsara, a make up artist but oversized girl. Both of them instantly dislike each other because of their looks and the edited pictures they uploaded but agree on being friends as an excuse to leave the date. Later Chaman offers to drop Apsara and both end up having an accident. In hospital their families bond well and assume them a couple. They set their Roka much to Chaman’s chagrin but Apsara starts falling for him. She posts their picture on Facebook which becomes a laughing stock for students who post hate comments making Chaman really upset. He asks Apsara to delete it when she tries hard to explain him that people will say some or the otheR thing but we shouldn’t react on everything and accept ourselves the way we are. On their engagement Chaman texts Apsara that he is not happy with this union and she takes the blame on herself calling off the ceremony. Chaman sulks in private and the clerk notices this and takes him to dinner at his place. He introduces him to his wife who his mute and yet how happy they are as a couple. Later Chaman starts dating a colleague who earlier rejected him. She asks him to meet his parents by wearing his wig. This gives Chaman the epiphany that how honest and pure Apsara was. She accepted him for his inner beauty and not his debonair looks. He goes and apologises to her and they are seen living happily together.
